Join us for a deep dive into Pride and Prejudice. Art Historian Kristen Miller Zohn, who has written about Jane Austen, will explore the 18th-century practice of judging character by scrutinizing facial features and expressions. (In the novel, Elizabeth Bennet judges Mr. Darcy’s character by examining his smiling face in a portrait.)
Kristen Zohn, who lives in Columbus, is executive director of the Costume Society of America and curator of the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art in Mississippi. She’s also a frequent lecturer on portraiture and decorative arts of the nineteenth century, and her essay about Austen and the visual arts was published in the journals of the Jane Austen Society of North America.
